In which I read all of Shakespeare’s plays.
This is a challenge I decided to do on my own after realizing that, if I read one a month, it would take me another two years to read all of Shakespeare’s plays. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a while. And while I loved my grad school Shakespeare class, I’ve only read one play since then. Since I tend to do well with challenges, I thought this would be a fun way to keep track of they plays I still need to read, and motivate myself to continue reading one a month until I’m done.
Crossed out plays are ones that I’ve already read. I’ll keep crossing them out until they’re all read. Feel free to make suggestions for what I should read next!
